I like the idea, except that we cannot redefine marker-mid. So:

marker-start, marker-end, marker-mid - same as now,

marker-equispaced - markers are placed equidistantly regardless of
nodes. This is additionally controlled by one of the two properties:

marker-number - the total number of markers

marker-distance - the distance between markers along the path,
measured from start of path.

If only marker-number is specified, this number of markers is
distributed equispacedly along the path. If only marker-distance is
specified, markers are at this distance of each other, and the total
number of them is as necessary to fill all path. If both marker-number
and marker-distance are specified, only part of the path may have
markers, depending on the number, distance, and path length.
